Cairns Great Barrier Reef Small Group Tour Itinerary

This Great Barrier Reef day tour is a great way to see one of the world’s most fascinating destinations. On this spectacular Great Barrier Reef Tour you experience a breathtaking coral reef in pristine blue waters that are full of colourful and unusual marine life. As we are with only a small group, you will have lots of space to explore and enjoy the tour!

Meet your friendly crew at the Cairns Marina early in the morning so we have the whole day at the Outer Reef. Whilst on route, learn all about the reef in a fun way and let the dive experts show you the beautiful marine life, from turtles, sharks, rays, coral and other wildlife.

We’ll head to our main Great Barrier Reef spot for the day, Upolu Reef, which is a colourful coral reef filled with unusual and captivating marine life. Take advantage of the free guided snorkel tour to explore the reef or try one of our optional upgrades which include beginner and certified dives. Here we’ll be spending almost 4 hours, which means you’ve got so much time to snorkel or dive, swim and sunbathe.

Returning home from the Reef is anything but boring, as you take in the spectacular views and the fresh air of the ocean.

This is the best value Great Barrier Reef Tour on offer!
